I posted on the forum a while back
that I have a bottle of White Horse dating from 1954-56. It is in very good condition as far as the contents go (i.e. no evaporation); the bottle itself is in fair shape. Though it was valued somewhere between £40-300 at auction, I have decided against auctioning it off. My Q is this: does anyone have direct
experience with drinking old whisky, and if so, what should I be looking for to determine if it's still potable, and what should I do after it's been opened? By this I mean, will it be obvious by the smell that it's good or bad, and will it go bad if I don't drink it in a day or 2? It's a 40 oz. bottle, so I'll have to take a day off from work if that's the case! Ha-ha.
Thanks and regards,
